Mammalian species available in the markets


Prionailurus bengalensis - Bengal Leopard cat

 

Depending on the subspecies, this species is listed as either CITES I or CITES II.  Assuming  the various cats we saw were caught within China, the CITES listings are not applicable,  as CITES  regulations only pertain to international trade.     


 

There were four leopard cats in the Guangzhou Chao Tou market.  All appeared to be freshly wild caught.  While found throughout Asia, due to the surrounding mammalian wildlife, these likely came from central China.
